    • Richie J What is a indivisible resistance group?
    • Liz terry Hi libby, not sure about the answer... Maybe we can start one? New to elk grove... so why not?
    • LibbyLu Indivisible groups are being organized locally all across the nation, and globally as well. Indivisible is a plan and strategy to resist and oppose our 45th president and the actions of the Republican- dominated Congress.

      Good news, I finally found the Elk Grove Indivisible group, newly becoming organized and already with 200-plus people signed up.

      If anyone is interested in joining, contact morenoj246@gmail.com.

      For info about Indivisible, go to IndivisibleGuide.com.

      Many, many organizations are involved in resistance activities and citizens are contacted with actions to take on a daily basis: writing letters, making phone calls, attending rallies and more.

      In addition to the Women's March last Saturday, I have also attended the PP Pink Out Rally at the Capital last Tuesday, a MoveOn rally at Sen. Harris's office yesterday and a Nurse's rally last Sunday.

    • Magical Mary Check out the Library and ask the Children's Librarian what games and books are popular with this age group for checkout.

      You should also check for free summer performances at this and surrounding libraries. There are Magicians, (but not me in E.G. unfortunately. LOL) Puppet shows, Animal programs and more depending on the Library and how far they are into the Summer Reading Program.
      Try reading a story and letting him act it out , provide voices or play along with puppets.
      See if he is interested in telling you a story of his own about a favorite character from a book. With Q and A from you about the story he made up, this can be great fun. When drawn out, some Kids are very willing to embellish.

      You could try showing him how to cook something age appropriate. The gender bias against Boys cooking is breaking down and he may be interested. I you have a nearby Garden or Nursery he may have an interest in Gardening. A plant he can take care of and take home might be fun.
      Try introducing him to an interest of you own and see if he is apt.
      I remember wonderful talks with my Grandmother about what life was like in her youth. It's old hat to you but some Kids like that sort of thing.
      Google swimming pools in the area.

      Ha may already have hobbies that you can try to learn about. Teaching someone about his interest can add
      new dimension.
      Have a wonderful visit!

    • Magical Mary To answer your original question:

      Old Maid and Go Fish are always popular. Candy Land and Snakes and Ladders are easy games. Dollar store puzzles may be fun. they have a lot of easy ones and being timed on how fast he does them over and over can add a challenge.

    • Ben Bernards Check out games like Forbidden Island, Takenoko, Ticket to Ride, Jamaica, Camel Up!, Splendor, Apples to Apples, No Thanks, Sherrif of Nottingham, etc. (Cheapest place to buy them is Amazon. Easiest way to learn to play is to look for videos on YouTube.)

  • Restaurants With Music
    My daughter and grandson liked the mariachi music as a local Mexican restaurant, but they no longer have the band playing on Friday evenings.

    Are there other restaurants which have music on the weekends? Does Palermos still have music? I want to take them out for a special dinner, and I was hoping for live music to go with it.

    Thanks.
  • Board and Card Games
    Grandma, here.
    Suggestions for 7-year old boy who needs more to do at my house when he comes to visit for the summer.
    Thanks.
